Object name: NGC4762
Designation(s): NGC4762, NGC4754,
NGC 4762 and NGC 4754 are said to be a pair of non-interacting galaxies. NGC 4762 is a rather odd galaxy seen exactly edge on. A bright star-like core is seen with a very narrow disk oddly missing any hint of a dust lane. This leads to it being classed as SB0? by the NGC project and SB(r)0^0^ at NED. The disk ends with a huge warped plume off each end. The south end curves sharply to the west but a faint plume continues southwest and another to the southeast. Off the northeast end of the upper plume, a narrow faint plume continues to the northeast. To have these various plumes it must have interacted with some other galaxy in the last billion years or so. Redshift puts its distance at about 60 million light-years. Unfortunately, the error bar is rather large at this range. Tully Fisher measurements show 55 million light-years while an analysis of its globular cluster's brightness put it at 78 million light-years. Pick one!
